About Us

Are you ready for the greatest adventure of your life? In this podcast, we explore the adventures, challenges, triumphs, ups and downs, and joy that encompass fatherhood. I am the father of 6 kids; for that my wife and I had 4 and adopted two from Haiti. I think I have a unique perspective and experiences to help fathers become the best dad possible.

95. A Dad's Experience with Suicide - Pt 3

Originally I wasn't going to do a part 3 of "A Dad's Experience with Suicide". However, after a conversation with a listener about his own experience with depression and his failed suicide attempt and a conversation I had with my daughter I thought a third episode was needed. Join me as we discuss the challenge of bottling up all of our emotions, not giving ourselves kudos, and abandonment issues that can lead to depression, anxiety, and potentially suicidal thoughts We also explore this signed that your loved one might have abandonment issues Cycling through relationships Sabotaging relationships Needing constant reassurance Separation Issues Fear or dislike of being alone If you need to chat about you or a family member please send me a DM or email me at fathersfyre@gmail.com Have a blessed day Jody Sedrick

94 - A Dad's Experience with Suicide Part 2

The outpouring of comments, support, and questions for last week's episode of "A Dad's Experience with Suicide" has motivated me to create a follow-up episode. I thought I'd share some practical tools that we've put in place to protect not only our loved one struggling with suicidal thoughts but also ensure the safety and well being of other members of the family. A few highlights: Purchasing safes to house medications and knives Working out every day with my wife Ladies retreat for my wife Early morning devotionals - personal and with a trusted friend Working with other men fixing stuff or driving like a mad man with my buddy Recognize everyone deals with problems differently and give them grace Sharing of the poem, Roar! that I wrote Gratitude Journal If you have any comments or have personal experiences you would like to share please reach out to me at fathersfyre@gmail.com or direct message me on TikTok, Instagram or Facebook.

93 - A Dad’s Experience with Suicide Pt. 1

Events have occurred this week that have pushed me to share some very personal experiences and thoughts about suicide. Many families are faced with teens, younger children, mothers, and even fathers who wrestle with suicidal thoughts and related mental health issues. These thoughts are very personal and have debated what to share for some time as I want to be respectful of my own family members but also the seriousness of the issue. I truly hope something that I share with you today will be of help to you and your family. If you need a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, a heart to pray with please give me a shout. The Suicide Hotline is 1-800-273-8255 You may also find these two videos helpful Like a Broken Vessel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrNqGqy5kbQ Elder Jeffrey R.

91. Walking With the Courage of a Lion - When You Don't Feel Courageous

You know how my wife always gets me thinking. Earlier this week she asked me "How come you don't cry and get emotional like me?" I've thought a lot about her question and my response to her. (No I'm not telling you. You have to tune in to hear the answer) I thought this would be a great discussion so I reached out to 3 men brave enough to have an honest discussion about how we face the challenges in life and share how we are feeling with our wife. I'm really excited to explore this topic with Antoine J. Brown Mike Lewis and Rick Kolb. Guest: Antoine J.
